Film Classics in 35mm! Bob Rafelson, 1933-2022


United States | 1976 | Bob Rafelson

STAY HUNGRY film still

Jeff Bridges, Sally Field, and Arnold Schwarzenegger (in his “official” screen debut) star in this quirky, overlooked 1970s gem from the late Bob Rafelson, a founding father of 1970s’ “New Hollywood” and director of Head, Five Easy Pieces, and The King of Marvin Gardens. Stay Hungry, Rafelson’s fourth feature, is set in the “New South” and focuses on an Alabama rich kid and misfit (Bridges) who becomes involved with the denizens of a local gym, including an Austrian bodybuilder training to be Mr. Universe. Robert Englund, Scatman Crothers, and Joanna Cassidy co-star. “There is nothing predictable about Stay Hungry, nothing formula, nothing boring.” –L.A. Free Press. 35mm. 102 min.

Special admission $13; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $10. No passes.

Face masks, though always recommended, must be worn by filmgoers only when the CDC’s community risk level for Covid in Cuyahoga County is HIGH. Visit for the current community risk level and see the “Face Coverings” section for our detailed mask requirements.

As a reminder, filmgoers can park for free in Lot 73 and in the Institute's annex lot, and should enter CIA via nearby Entrance C. Click here for a map.
